    Philipopotamus'' Sketchbook

    Hi My Name is Philipe and I am an Animation Student in Cape Town South Africa, currently on my 2nd year of studies. I'm here to get better and learn more. I don't know yet what i will be going into when I graduate but right now I"m leaning more toward the concept side of things.

    Well that's enough talk here's a painting I did yesterday it is a study on Martin Victor's "Hero of the Kulikov Battle"
    The one in the below that is a drawing for a little job i did.
    The last one is a concept for a fantasy landscape, that i did in December.

    Here is it sort of finished, well the dogs (they are suppose to be dogs) on the left are too squashed together and look like crap i must say.

    Hey here are a few updates, I went through the human skull again, it feels like I learned almost nothing the first time!
    I did a very quick little portrait (the lady's face looks like it is melting on one side ).
    I also went through a bit of the torso.
    I also did a study of a chair outside my house.

    Hi I just did a few portrait sketches today from some Russian paintings. I tried using the planes method by Andrew Loomis.

    Hi again I've got small WIP which I'm thinking of turning into A concept piece.
    Please feel free to critique it and tell me if there are any improvements that can be made to the composition.

    The first are just doodles from my brain. On second page are 30 second and 1 minute sketches and on the final page are 5 and 10 minutes.
    I also worked a bit on my WIP from yesterday.

    Still working on it. Had to change a few things, the color still seems a bit off though.

    Hey mate. You got the right attitude, keep trying and don't get discouraged, it all adds up in the end ( or at least so I'm told, cause I didn't get there neither ) So you know, Loomis, Bridgeman, Hogart, all that stuff, and specially, my advise to understand structure quickly, or as quickly as one can, would be try to think of the interrelationship of the diferent masses and don't get a stiff idea on how something is suposed to look, if you apply this and understand the basic interrelation of the diferent body masses rather than trying to learn each and every muscle, you'll get far in no time.

    Cheers!
